Unidentified Human Remains Buried in Warren County


Warrenton, MO – Human remains that were found at a rest stop on Interstate 70 in Warren County were buried Sunday.

Investigators still don't know who the woman was whose torso was found. The Warren County Sheriff and Coroner were part of a short funeral service.

There have been no arrests in the murder, but police say they've spoken with a man in Alabama who's being investigated in at least 10 other murders.

Warren County authorities say he's made no admissions about the Missouri case, but that they're hopeful he can solve the mystery of the woman's identity.

Investigators say the headless, limbless torso found in June was that of a white woman in her 20s.
